IMHO we should move as many ports over to real / on cd for install isos
as possible, at least everything that is easily bootable that way.
Amd64 certainly qualifies and is the most easy next target.

We might need to do a few rearangements in the makefiles involved to
make this setup easier (i.e. avoid lots of duplicated make code),
compare the sparc64 cd setup and i386 to see what I mean.
